Pongwe Resort Zanzibar
Studio Moren were provided with the unique opportunity to create a new luxury destination fronting the sandy white beaches of Zanzibar. Steeped in the rich traditions of Swahili architecture, the design concept reflects a mix of ‘Stonetown’ structure and informal beachfront bungalows.
The focus of the resort is a substantial ‘fort’ building which will house the reception along with restaurant and bar facilities. An organic arrangement of secluded villas & apartments will surround this.
The creation of an inland island and surrounding lagoon will form another activity node and will accommodate a variety of restaurants, leisure areas and pool bar, while providing evening ambience when the sea view is dark.
